Boomerangs & Seesaws

My old friend Jamie was in town last night. His girlfriend - Shannon Curtis - was supposed to play at the Iron Horse. I'm not going to bore you with all the details, but there was a mix-up and she didn't get to play in the end. Despite that disappointment, it was fabulous to see Jamie, catch up and share some gossip about our other high school friends.

Shannon is absolutely charming and talented. I'm listening to her CD "Boomerangs & Seesaws" as I type this. She has a new CD coming out today "Paris Can't Have You". You can hear the title track on her MySpace page. It's the loveliest thing I've heard in a long time. Also check out the tour schedule on the MySpace page. Those of you who read this who live in Burlington, Chicago, Boulder, Portland, etc. should go out and see her.

In knitting news I finished this:
Elizabeth Zimmerman's Feburary Baby Sweater in
Berroco Pure Merino Nuance.
(sidewalk artwork by Audrey)
Nora Noodle watch your mailbox.....

And started this:
Lace Ribbon Scarf from Knitty in
Great Adirondack Bamboo Cotton.

Finally, there was evidence this morning that spring may have finally come to the Pioneer Valley. I love how tulips look like hungry baby birds when they first come up.


  1. And perfect baby birds they are, because they never grow up into real birds that congregate together en masse. Cause that's just creepy.

  2. You have CROCUS???

    Exceptional sidewalk art, I'd say.

  3. The Noodle is VERY excited! xoxo

  4. Feb. is lovely! My shoots are getting taller, but no buds yet and today isn't helping ;(
